I feel Final Fantasy XV can restart the popularity of the franchise.

also the Japaneses get cooler names for the games, "Psycho Break" is so much better than "The Evil Within", same thing with the original Resident Evil/Biohazard

Wii U sales will skyrocket when Mario Kart comes out.

Or put the final nail in the coffin.

I'm amused that Watch Dogs is there. Good job, Ubisoft.

Good job SONY

Its funny that Super Smash Bros for 3DS is more wanted than the same game in Wii U which is not even in the list. :o
Metallox  +   304d ago
You know, Nintendo just killing more and more the Wii U.

Handhelds are doing great in Japan at the moment, especially the 3DS. The Wii U version is aimed at the Western market I imagine.
truechainz  +   304d ago
Yeah it makes sense since handhelds are king in Japan. Most half-way competitive players will get it for Wii U or both since the control sticks will be much better for the game than the circle pad.
Blastoise  +   304d ago
Persona 5, Freedom Wars, Dark Souls 2 and The Evil Within. 2014 is a good year for Japanese games
Inception  +   304d ago
Yeah but not a good year for our wallet >.<
Blastoise  +   304d ago
No not at all lol. There's loads more too like Y's, Toukiden and Danganronpa ect
Hicken  +   304d ago
Now if only those- particularly Persona and Freedom Wars- could make it to the US this year, I'd be a happy camper.
Blastoise  +   304d ago
Freedom wars will, i'd bet my Vita on it. Persona will too I bet, but we'll have to beg SEGA for half a year first lol
EXVirtual  +   304d ago
Surprised KH3 is only no.5.
Final Fantasy XV being no.1 is awesome. Hopefully we'll get some more news on that soon.
Persona 5 is my most anticipated game for this year. And in case anyone's concerned about localization, don't worry. The teaser was using both English and Japanese. Who knows? Maybe Sega could help get it out in NA a week or two after the Japanese release.
But... where's the info? I need info.
Since they've revived Persona magazine, I really hope they show us a screenshot or something.

Sees the headline... "Oh, lemme guess, Final Fantasy XV is #1. Persona 5 is #2."

While I was right about those, I was impressed by how popular Basara/Musou still are, at #s 3 and 4! Also, I didn't even know about Freedom Wars. This was informative!
kalkano  +   304d ago
It's actually depressing to see Final Fantasy XV at the top...

If Japanese gamers start to align with the interests of western gamers, then gaming will forever be dead to me.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   304d ago
Persona is moving up. They even got Persona Q on there. FFXV at #1 obvious its my most wanted game also.
CAB1802  +   304d ago
LOLOLOL, No one is metnining Mario Kart 8 which is 6th, why do you drones keep away thr good Wii U news and bad Sony news
AsunaYuukiTheFlash  +   304d ago
